Question about LeapFrog Leapster Electronic Book: Spider-Man (30425) for PC, Mac
I bought the Leapster 2-Cars Edition brand new. I put new Energizer batteries in the system and turned it on. The game comes on however we can't get past the sign in screen. The leapster 2 doesn't recognize the stylus.
Hold the hint button (question mark) when turning on the device. When the device turns on, do the stylus calibration and touch each of the crosshairs that shows up. After you are finished restart the leapster and you should be fine.

The solution by Octopus80 works well, but it should be mentioned that when the troubleshooting screen comes up, press the A button to proceed. Anyway, thanks to the man with 8 legs

Sethnchrista- Press the power button FIRST then immediately press and hold the "?" until you it comes on and then release the "?" and press the "A" that says "Calibration". Then with your stylus hit each of the "+" until it's finished. Then press and hold the power button until Leapster turns off. After screen is black release the power button and Leapster will turn back on and will be Calibrated successfully. Good Luck!

Thank you, that fixed it! Remember: You must hold down the question (?) button from before you power it on, until the calibration/diagnostic screen comes up...

I am having trouble with this solution. It seemed to work at first, then stylus was useless again. And when I hit A button to recalibrate - the crosshairs didn't even show up,just got a blank screen. When they finally did show up - I thought I fixed it, but after restarting the stylus was useless again. Very frustrated.

SOURCE: Leapster won't turn on
Had the same problem. I could randomly make it turn on by some bazzarre combination of pushing buttons. Now won't do anything. Call Leapster 800 #, and thought I was getting a bunch of b.s. from a "tech" person, however IT IMMEDIATELY RESOLVED THIS PROBLEM. Remove the battery pack and batteries. Take a pencil eraser and rub/clean the contact point where each battery goes in on the tray (except the coil sides). Reinstall the batt's back in the trey. Use the eraser to do the same thing to the outside contact points on the outside edge of the tray as well as on the Leapster itself where the tray goes. Finally reinstall the the battery tray, and BINGO ! Crazy....I would have lost a bet on this "fix".
